Clear Springs Annexation

To Be Discussed by City;

Morale Report Not on Agenda


Damage was heavy to this home, owned by Tim
Hawley, at 540 Lemon St. Thursday night. Deputy
Fire Chief Bobby Pitman said two to three rooms
were completely burned, but half to three-quarters
of the house was saved. The state fire marshal ruled
the fire accidental, started by either a candle or dis-
carded cigarette. Bartow firefighters arrived about


9:50 p.m., and were on scene until midnight.
Highland City firefighters aided in suppression of
the blaze, while Eagle Lake stood by in case they
were needed elsewhere in the city. The wood struc-
ture was built in the late 1890s or early 1900s, the
owner told Pitman. - Photo by S.L. Frisbie, IV


Dantzler Pushes for


Heartland Parkway


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

As former state senator Rick
Dantzler approached the podium,
members of the Tiger Bay Club of
Polk County were wondering if
Central Florida really needed a
new expressway.
Dantzler is the spokesman for
the Heartland Environmental
Agricultural Rural Task Force
(HEART), a group of landowners
promoting the. proposed
Heartland, Parkway, a toll road
stretching from State Road 80
near Fort Myers, between U.S.
Highways 17 and 27, and ending
at Interstate 4.
HEART formed as a way to
control and shape the growth that
is considered inevitable for
Central Florida, Dantzler said. By
planning ahead, HEART hopes
that larger tracts of land can be
preserved for agricultural and
environmental purposes than if
development were to happen
piecemeal.
In order for that to happen,
there would have to be small
areas of high density develop-
ment, Dantzler admitted, but he
felt that would be better than the
alternative.
..."If I were king, I would stop
growth entirely; unfortunately,

::If enthusiasm and dedication
hive anything to do with it,
Siimmerlin Academy will have a
unique program in the state of
Florida.
:Already the school's elective
equiestrian class is one of only two
in :'the state, but instructors
Heather Snyder and Ken Allen
have plans to build the class into
a:team and hope to make it a com-
1pltion program.
::-Bartow High School already
lihs completion programs for car-
pentry, health occupations and
educators. These programs have
articulation agreements with
Traviss Career Center, Polk
Community College and the
University of South Florida, so
that students can get college-level
classes and credit in high school.
That's in the future, but right
now equestrian students are
enrolled in a very comprehensive
course, Allen said. Classes include
much more than learning to sit in
a saddle.
First is a nine-week safety pro-
gram based on University of
Florida, University of Kentucky
and 4-H guidelines. The safety


that's not possible," Dantzler said.
Current practices would
sprawl developments all over the
county, leaving only small pockets
of undeveloped land that would
be inadequate for large-territory
animals.
Dantzler, envisions the
Heartland Parkway as a "limited
access people mover" as well as a
new hurricane evacuation route.
The section of the road in Polk
County, known as the Polk
Fishhook, would be the most fea-
sible to construct, he said.
One Tiger Bay member wanted
to know why, if this road is so
important, was the initiative com-
ing from the private sector rather
than the Department of
Transportation.
Danztler said that the DOT
had been considering this road for
some time, but that these
landowners felt that more imme-
diate action was necessary in
light of anticipated growth. The
Polk Fishhook especially needed
immediate attention, he said.
He also said that improve-
ments to existing roads, such as
Highway 27, would not be enough
to handle the anticipated increase
in traffic.
The landowners of HEART
could possibly donate 40 to 50
percent of the right-of-way neces-
sary for the Heartland Parkway,


an


which would lessen the burden on
the taxpayers, Dantzler added.
He said he is unsure how
Governor Charlie Crist feels
about the Heartland Parkway,
and that he has work to do in that
regard. Former Governor Jeb
Bush had been supportive of this
and similar initiatives, Dantzler
said.
He is hopeful that HEART can
continue to have dialogue with
Crist after the end of the special
session of the Florida Legislature.
HEART also is working to gain
the support of local environmen-
tal groups. Dantzler said that
they have discussed it with sever-
al of them. While no group was
ready to fully endorse HEART at
this point, he said that they were
interested in this idea and indi-
cated that they might be willing
to support the project when they
know more about the project
details.
He admitted that there was
opposition to the proposal, pre-
dominantly from coastal areas.
Danztler said that the coast fails
to appreciate the changes that
are coming to the region.
"They see the heartland and
want to keep it wide open forev-
er," he said. "But we can't let the
market control what develop-
ments go where."


Bartow city commissioners
will discuss annexing more of the
Clear Springs Land Co. property
adjacent to the city limits at a
work session this afternoon.
In 2001, the city annexed
approximately 11,000 acres of
the former Clear Springs phos-
phate mine into the city limits;
there is another 7,000 acres of
Clear Springs property outside of
the city.
Clear Springs Land Co. is cre-
ating a plan for development of
the entire 18,000 acres. The prop-
erty would have several residen-
tial communities, two industrial
sites, two public schools, a golf
course, and a research corporate
park.
The company will make a pre-
sentation on the proposed annex-
ation at the commission's work
session this afternoon at 5
o'clock, half an hour earlier than
the usual starting time for work
sessions.
The commission will recon-
vene at 6:30 p.m. for its regular
business meeting.
A five-hour "strategic plan-
ning" retreat is scheduled on
Wednesday from noon to 5 p.m.
at Bartow Municipal Airport.
Conspicuously absent from
the agendas for all three meet-
ings is any mention of a 242-page


report on city employee morale,
delivered to the commission at its
May 21 meeting by Dr. Mel
Jurado.
The report recommends that
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge be
fired, and that the city evaluate
the leadership of Asst. City Mgr.
Linda Weldon, Electric Dept.
Supt. Alan Hutto, and Police
Chief Erik Sandvik.
The report documents a num-
ber of city morale issues and
management shortcomings.
Two special meetings to dis-
cuss the findings have been
scheduled since the report was
released, but both were canceled.
Today's commission meeting will
be the first held sinco the report
was released.
Nor does the agenda mention
replacing City Atty. George
Dunlap, who resigned the posi-
tion he has held for 35 years
rather than being "required to
advise, counsel, and participate
with the City Commission in
actions recommended by the sur-
vey."
Other items on the agenda:
* Discussion of an appoint-
ment to the Code Enforcement
Board.
* Discussion of a nomination
for a Florida League of Cities
award.

at Summerlin Academy were (from left) Jackie

Class Teaches More Than Horsemanship


program is part of the school's
agreement with the county.
During this time, students
may visit High Gait Farm, but
only to observe the horses. They
also learn nutrition, grooming,
care and management.
Nutritionists, vets and other
experts are brought in to teach.
Some students have been
around horses, but often have not
learned proper safety and care.
Horse riding can be considered
a dangerous sport, the instructors
acknowledge, but education mini-
mizes the risk.
High Gait Farm, owned by Ken
and Bonnie Allen, is the site for
teaching the comprehensive dres-
sage program. The established
dressage farm has round pens, a
riding arena, a working show
barn, and trained Arabian horses.
"Dressage is the highest form
of training you can give to a horse
and rider," Allen explained. "It
teaches balance and symmetry so
that the rider becomes one with
the hosee"
Developed for war horses,
dressage goes back all the way to
ancient Greece and is taught all
over the world.
"It's the best form of training
for whatever you do, barrel rac-


ing, rodeo, anything," he said, giv-
ing the rider the ability to control
the horse and be almost motion-
less, which is better for the horse.
"It has a great deal to do with
balance," Snyder said, "your cen-
ter of balance. It's a very athletic
program, as well."


Both young men and women
participated in the program this
first year, and with returning rid-
ers next year, Allen and Snyder
can begin to build a team, with
students at different levels of
training.
Besides learning about horses


and riding, students learn clear
thinking and organization which
translates into better grades, they
said,
"They learn to control their
emotions," Allen said. Nine times
out of 10 when something goes
wrong, it's not the horse's fault, he


noted. When a rider loses his cool,
it's because he was thinking of
something else or he has run out
of education.
Any anxiety or fear on the part

Dressage teaches balance and symniet ry. and can be a lifelong
pursuit. Students practice at High Gait Farm, and just before the end
of school they presented a program for family and friends at the farm.

Familiar Face Now Owns Bartow Curves


Curves of Bartow is now under
new ownership.
Manager Rebecca Carroll,
along with her husband, Dennis,
hasVe purchased the fitness center
from Donald and Kathie Rosa,
who had owned the center since
December of 2003.
"Members will agree that
Rebecca has given 'new life' to
the Bartow Curves, and has
made it a vibrant part of the
members' lives and a most valu-
able asset to the Bartow commu-
nity," Donald Rosa said.
"Rebecca brought her experi-
ence from the Lakeland Curves
to Bartow," Mrs. Rosa said, "but


her dedication to the members in
Bartow, their health and well-
ness, over the last 18 months, has
made the club what it is today."
Curves International recently
awarded "Shining Star Status" to
Bartow Curves. Fewer than 10
percent of the more than 10,000
Curves clubs around the world
have achieved that honor.
"Rebecca made that happen,",
Mrs. Rosa said.
In addition to making Curves'
members feel welcome, as well as
increasing their health and well-
ness, Mrs. Carroll has encour-
aged her members to participate
in community affairs as a group.


One example is the recent Relay
For Life walk, in which members
raised more than $3,600.
Mrs. Carroll will continue toe
have the resources of Curves
International behind her. Bartow
as one of the early clubs in what
is now the largest fitness organi-
zation in the world, with more
than 10,000 clubs in 34 countries
and growing.
Curves uses a 30-minute
workout designed for women of
all ages.
For more information about
Curves, call Mrs. Carroll at 519-

Insurance Regulation to lower
auto rates by a statewide average
of nearly 16 percent.
This auto rate decrease
reflects savings Florida cus-


tomers will see once the No-Fault
(PIP) auto insurance system ends
in October under current law.
According to the recently
approved rate decrease, State
Farm auto customers in Florida
will save an annual average of


$360 per two-car household once
No Fault-(PIP) ends.
This represents an annual
savings of $435 million to the
company's Florida customers, a
spokesman said.


72-Hour Road Safety Event Planned


Florida Department of
Transportation will participate
in a 72-hour safety event.
Colonel David Dees, director of
the Motor Carrier Compliance
Office, announced that MCCO
will participate in Roadcheck
2007, an. international activity
that will take place June 5-7
throughout the United States,
Canada and Mexico.
Annual Roadchecks, which
began in 1988, are sponsored by
the Commercial Vehicle Safety
Alliance, North America's lead-


ing commercial vehicle safety
enforcement organization.'
Roadcheck 2007 will empha-
size promoting both safety and
security on Florida's highways
through the inspection of com-
mercial vehicles and drivers.
Officers will be on the job
night and day during the 72-hour
period checking vehicles and
their drivers at inspection sites
along major highways. In addi-
tion, roving patrols will inspect
vehicles and drivers traveling
other highways.


Although officers perform this
work day in and day out,
Roadchecks place a special
emphasis on year-round commer-
cial vehicle and driver safety
inspections aimed at saving lives
on Florida highways. MCCO con-
ducts over 80,000 commercial
vehicle inspections annually.
The number of inspections is
growing each year as the volume
of commercial traffic increases.

4 The Polk County Democrat


S Editorial


We can think of no more effective way to
achieve failure than by planning to fail.
Or perhaps there is just one: announcing
a plan to fail.
That is precisely what Hillsborough
County did last week.
County Administrator Pat Bean sent a
memo to county employees announcing a
hiring freeze, and telling them to expect
lay-offs.
And she further warned that "citizens
may experience limited access to some ser-
vices and most programs will likely be
scaled back substantially."
It is a plan for failure, and a ready-made
excuse for mediocre performance by coun-
ty employees.
It is a malingerer's dream come true.
Ms. Bean's memo was prompted by
speculation over what the Florida
Legislature will do to provide property tax
relief when it meets in special session this
month. She is not alone in raising a cry of
alarm over the impact that city and county
governments will feel if they are forced to
get along without the windfall increases in
tax revenues that have been brought about
by Florida's land boom of the past few
years.
Government officials warn that libraries
won't be built, law enforcement officers
won't be hired, and essential services gen-
erally will be curtailed.
Largely missing from the discussion are
such things as a freeze on public employee
salaries, a moratorium on creation of new
positions, or a delay in replacing older
vehicles in the motor pool. Those
economies would have little or no impact
on the public.
Every business goes through cycles of
good times and bad. Newspaper compa-
nies are not exempt from this financial
reality, and it is no secret that several large
newspapers in Florida are having to deal


INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD


with reduced advertising sales and thinner
profit margins.
But we haven't seen any reports of
newspapers warning their readers that sto-
ries will be less accurate, editorials less fair,
printing quality less crisp, or delivery ser-
vice less reliable. Private businesses cannot
afford to punish their customers when
times get tight.
Employees sometimes have to work a
little harder; managers sometimes have to
manage a little better; stockholders some-
times have to settle for lower earnings.
But the customers are not punished to
keep them reminded that things aren't
looking so good on the bottom line.
Property taxes have escalated at a rate
that far surpasses the growth of the econo-
my for several years. Homeowners faced
with double-digit increases in their' tax
bills are not getting double-digit increases
in their wages to pay them.
The much-feared "cuts" in tax revenues
are nothing more than a roll-back to a more
reasonable rate of increase.
The sky is not falling.
The focus should be on planning how to
succeed in the face of adversity, not on
planning how to fail. Taxpayers and voters
should accept nothing less.

Country Music: Country No More


With some things, to get to the
best, one must back up.
Many of today's young coun-
try music fans wouldn't recog-
nize a real country song if it
chugged up beside them on the
Wabash Cannonball, picking a
dobro, and yodeling Jimmie
Rodger's "Blue Yodel No. 2."
I've listened to country music
since I was big enough to turn the
dial on a radio, and I can assure
you the tunes that poured from
country music radio stations in
those days were a far cry from
.what is played today. Today's
country is little more than pop
rock of the seventies - and bad,
rock at that.
On their 10th anniversary
album, in a song called "Nobody
Wants to Be Country," the Statler
Brothers sang:
"Nobody wants to be country,
everybody wants to go pop;
"They've traded in their sad-
dles and all try to straddle the
road that'll take 'em to the top.
"They put their steel in hock,
add a little rock, and wind up
something they're not;
"Nobody wants to be country;
they want to go pop."
Elvis must bear a sizable
chunk of the blame for that.
After he burst into the national
spotlight in 1956, a whole genera-
tion of country singers suddenly
forsook their roots and decided to
"go pop." Even countrified
Conway Twitty went pop for
awhile. He, however, had the
good sense to realize his country
roots were too deep to defy and
quickly climbed back over onto
his own the side of the fence.
Elvis was a country boy, too,


but the difference in him and
Conway - and the hordes of
other country boys who aspired
to go pop - was that early on,
Elvis's musical interests were
more far-reaching.
On Saturday nights he listened
to the Grand Ole Opry, but on
other nights he sneaked into all-
night gospel sings that featured
such groups as The Blue Ridge
Quartet, The Blackwood
Brothers, The Sunshine Boys, and
The Statesmen - and he studied
the performances of flamboyant
front men like Ace Richman,
Laverne Tripp and Hovie Lister.
In the afternoons after school,
Elvis would slip into black music
stores, hunch down in a booth,
and listen to rhythm and blues.
From a combination of coun-
try, Southern gospel, and the
rhythm and blues of the Deep
South, Elvis developed his
unique style that became known
as rock 'n roll.
As a whole generation of
wannabes tried to follow in his
footsteps, one might assume that
to find any honest country music
one would have to go back before
Elvis. If not for .a few country
singers like George Jones who
remained true to his roots, that
might be true.
George was country before
Elvis- got here, he stayed country
while Elvis was here, and he has
remained country since Elvis left
the building. Jones is a legend in
his own time.
Another country music great,
Merle Haggard, is still rolling
down America's highways in his
big Silver Eagle, making great
country music, along with


George Strait, Alan Jackson,
Randy Travis, and a handful of
others.
But for 'the best, the purest
country music, we must indeed
go back before Elvis to the 1940s
and early '50s. For a taste of the
real thing we must listen to Hank
Williams, Sr., and Lefty Frizzell.
As I step back and really listen
to Lefty, I must agree with Hank
Williams, Jr., that Lefty Frizzell
just might be the most underesti-
mated talent in the business.
Hank Jr. led the force that had
Lefty, however belatedly, induct-
ed into the Country Music Hall
Of Fame.
Hank and Lefty toured togeth-
er for years. Each was so popular
they'd flip a coin to see who
would perform first. At the end
of each show, they'd do a number
together. How sad they never col-
laborated on an album.
Williams died, an old man, at
29. Frizzell staggered on to the
ripe old age of 47. But in their
short, troubled lives, each man
wrote some of country music's
greatest songs and recorded
enough music to delight country
fans forever.

I apologize for not mentioning
any of the great ladies of country
music like Mother Maybelle
Carter, Kitty Wells, Tammy
Wynette, Loretta Lynn, and so
many more. The women are a
whole other story.

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

He Left Home Without It


Planning To Fail Won't


Result in Success


whether they did indeed stamp
any passports for the papal party.
A priest at the Apostolic
Nuncio in the capital city of
Brasilia said he wasn't autho-
rized to comment.
The official spokesman for the
president of Brazil dummied up,
too.
The official spokesman for the
Vatican said he hadn't heard any-
thing about it until asked by the
Associated Press. He had nothing
further to say.
So who is talking?
Merval Pereira, described as
"a respected Brazilian newspaper
columnist" for O Globo newspa-
per in Rio, says neither the Pope
nor the Cardinal traveling with
him had their passports. He's
also the guy who reported that
the airline paid a fine.
I have sometimes mused how
often a traveler arrives at an air-
port, only to realize that his pass-
port is back home in the under-
wear drawer, or tucked safely
away in a safe deposit box. And
what can be done when that hap-
pens.
It is a thought that I have had
often enough to induce a certain
sense of paranoia on my own


infrequent travels beyond that '
land from sea to shining sea.
A passport, I have read occa-:
sionally, is the very best evidence
that you are who you say you are.
It beats simply being there when
it comes to establishing your exis-
tence.
If that is the case, I've got to
wonder just how essential it is for
the Pope to carry a passport. The
man dresses distinctively, and his
picture is in all the papers. And
his travels are widely publicized,
before he gets to his destination,
while he is there, and after he
returns home.
It would be easier to pass
yourself off as, say, the President '
of the United States. Watch any
late night talk show and you'll
see how many people are really
pretty good at it.
No, somehow I don't think
that the security of Brazil was '
threatened by the presence of a
passportless Pope.
With all due respect, I think we
should be a little more under-
standing.
After all, there is no Mrs. Pope
.to get out his passport, tuck it
inside his robe, and remind him
not to lose it.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Jack Hayman, Bugle Boy


Some things you just never
forget.
Monday was Memorial Day,
and when my clock radio went
off, someone was playing "To
The Colors" on his trumpet.
I immediately felt like I was
back at Summerlin Institute in
Bartow during World War II.
Every morning Jack Hayman
would play "To The Colors"
when the flag was raised on the
flag pole out front before classes
began.
Then after the last class of the
day, Jack would play "Taps"
when the flag was lowered.
I was in the Class of 1944, and
three days after we graduated, I
left for Washington to work for
the F.B.I. in the fingerprint divi-
sion.
The F.B.I. was moved into the
D.C. Armory because, I suppose,
it was the only place available
that would hold all of the Army
and Navy fingerprint cards and
all of the girls who were working
to get them classified and filed.
That is where I found out what
work really was. I worked a 60-
hour week from 8 in the morning
to 6 in the evening. The only day
we had off was Sunday.
I was amazed that my Dad let
me go up there to work. When I
was home, I had to be in bed by 9
o'clock.
I had just turned 17 when I
graduated. A man from the F.B.I.
spoke in our assembly dne morn-
ing, saying. that they were des-
perate for girls to work in the fin-
gerprint division. He said if fay-
one was interested, we should
meet with him in Mr. Dozier's


office after assembly was over.
Now that I think about it, he did-
n't mention wanting boys. I guess
they were all wanting to be in the
armed services.
When assembly was over,
there were only two of us who
wanted to work for the F.B.I., a
girl named Jean and me. The
F.B.I. man asked us both a lot of
questions, such as had we ever
been arrested and other personal
questions.
Neither of us had been, so we
were sent to the sheriff's office to
be fingerprinted. It was all very
exciting.
Graduation day arrived and so
did an official-looking letter from
the F.B.I. telling me that I had
been accepted. I think that was
the most exciting letter I ever
received.
We got paid every two weeks
and had to go down to the base-
ment in the D.C. Armory to pick
up our money. We got paid in


cash. My pay envelope got stolen.
in the ladies' roodi one time
when I had put it down to wash
my hands. That caused quite a
stir.
We never did get through all of
the fingerprint cards. There were
huge stacks of them, one for each
man in the service. Now I under-
stand that the F.B.I. has scanners
that record everyone's finger-
prints.
I wonder if they still have
"surprise" fingerprinting. We
would be called down to the
office every so often and be fin-
gerprinted so they could make
sure no one had sneaked in to
look at our fingerprints. That
makes me laugh to think about it.
They were really super cautious.
When the war was over, they
sent most of us home. I was glad
to get there.
It's amazing the things I
remember when someone plays
the trumpet on Memorial Day.


America is not the only coun-
Stry dealing with an influx of ille-
gal aliens.
Brazil is feeling our pain.
A news story out of Rio de
Janeiro last week discloses that a
couple of visitors from Italy
slipped into the country without
passports.
They were ... uh ... Pope
Benedict XVI and Cardinal
Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican sec-
retary of state.
Actually, we need to put an
"allegedly" in there somewhere.
II Papa and the Cardinal haven't
actually admitted that they
slipped into the country illegally.
But they haven't denied it,
either.
And the Italian airline that
transported these leaders of the
Roman Catholic world quietly
paid a fine for transporting two
undocumented passengers.
Allegedly, that is.
A spokesman for Alitalia said
he was unaware of the situation,
but that he would check into it.
The federal police in Rio
whose job it is to check passports,
stamping them randomly and
asking whether the trip is for
business or pleasure, are silent on

Are you the
picture of health?


Once upon a time it seemed
that vitamin supplements might
be a ;ort of insurance policy that
could lover oui risk of diseases
like cancer and heart disease if
our diets weren't quite good
enough.
However, a wide range of stud-
ies now suggests that's not neces-
sarily true. Any good or bad
effects of supplements are likely
to depend on individual differ-
ences in age, diet, environments
and genetics.
Research suggests that cancer,
heart disease and many other
chronic diseases involve several
common mechanisms affected by
nutrients.
For example, antioxidants pro-
tect against free radical damage;
calcium and vitamin D regulate
bone metabolism and cell growth
cycles. However, most studies
evaluating supplements have
shown little or no health benefit,
and occasionally even harm.
Age and time may explain
some of the lack of benefits seen.
Cancer, especially, usually devel-
ops over 10 to 20 years or more.
Vitamins and minerals that
influence DNA repair seem par-
ticularly involved in preventing
cancer development in its earli-
est stages. Most supplement-
related studies so far have fol-
lowed older age groups for two to
ten years.
It is possible that supplements
provide benefits that don't show
up in this age group for the time
studied, but more than just time
is involved.
A supplement may hold quite
different effects for people eating
a balanced diet than for those
whose diets are lacking. The
Linxian Trial, often cited as an
example of how beta-carotene,
vitamin E and selenium can
reduce cancer death rates, was
conducted in a Chinese popula-
tion known to be nutritionally
deficient.
That's no basis on which to
expect benefits for everyone,
regardless of diet.
A 2007 analysis of 68 studies
on antioxidant supplements con-
cluded that supplements of vita-
min A, beta-carotene and vitamin

Any anxiety or fear on the
part of the rider translates to the
horse. The animal and rider need
to be comfortable with each
other.
Twelve students participated
each of the first two semesters,
with eight students returning
the second semester. The instruc-
tors expect some turnover,
because of the number of classes
students need to take, or because
they get pulled out for FCAT
classes or other things.
"It's a stringent program,"
Snyder said. "We pride ourselves
on discipline."
But it's also a very enriching
program, she said. Students are
"starting to manage their
changes on the inside. It's so
rewarding to me to see that."
When students finally get to
the horse barn, they are shown
how to halter the horses the first
day, then are expected to try it
themselves the next day. The
third day they halter and bring
out the horses on their won, and
in four to six weeks, it's second
nature, Allen said.
"You see them handling the
horses with confidence," he
added. "They have to feel good
and confident on the ground
before mounting."
Some students have never
been around horses, and others
may have been, but were not
trained correctly. Having two
instructors helps deal with the
different levels of experience and
allows individualized instruc-
tion.
A special treat is instruction
from a champion dressage spe-
cialist, Greta Wrigley. Originally
from Trinidad, she is a graduate
of the British Riding Academy,


E could even increase overall
mortality rates.
Several studies now question
the value and safety of large
doses of antioxidant supple-
ments, suggesting they could
interfere with our bodies'
immune and cancer-fighting
functions.
Although more studies are
needed, research has shown that
supplements can provide benefits
for people whose diets do not sup-
ply enough of the nutrients
required for good health.
For example, vegans (vegetari-
ans who eat no animal products)
show benefits from supplements
of vitamin B12. People who don't
consume dairy products might
benefit from calcium and vitamin
D.
The many people who have
trouble meeting recommended
amounts of vegetables and fruits
may be an exception. Although
we might expect supplements of
nutrients like beta-carotene and
vitamin C to fill the gap, science
now suggests that much of the
benefit of these foods comes from
natural phytochemicals they con-
tain.
Exposures to hazards such as
tobacco smoke, pollution and
alcohol as well as medications
may make some people need
more of certain nutrients, or may
make high.doses of antioxidants
pose increased hazard. Beta-
carotene supplements, for exam-
ple, seem to increase risk of lung


and comes to help instructors
and boarders at High Gate once a
year.
Students are dedicated to the
program, coming from all over
the county. Transportation
becomes an issue for some of
them. For example, one girl from
Haines City had to take two
buses to get there.
Equestrian class is held three
Times a week. Students go to the
farm on Mondays and
Wednesday, and Fridays are
spent learning nutrition and
anatomy, and taking tests.
The only other public military
school in Florida, which is in
Sarasota, also offers an elective
equestrian course, but Allen says
they want a different emphasis
for the Summerlin program.
Lessons from the program can
help the students throughout
life, and can help build the
equine industry.
"So many jobs - vet,
groomers, assistants, and every-
thing in between - are avail-
able," Snyder said.
Two of their students are con-
sidering becoming veterinarians,
and scholarships may one day be
available for the equestrian stu-
dents.
"We may develop just trail rid-
ers," Allen said. "That would be
wonderful."
Allen and Snyder hope to
build the program so that there
are returning students all four
years. They could participate in
sanctioned shows and have small
class shows at the farm for those
who want to participate.
They also are looking at the
possibility of cavalry uniforms for
use in exhibitions, parades and
as a mounted color guard.
"We feel it will be a tremen-
dous asset to the school," Allen


cancer in smokers.
Genetic differences also may
meanl-hat supplements offering
protection for some people pro-
vide no effect or risk for others.
For example, differences in hor-
mone-related genes could explain
why vitamin E might protect
against prostate cancer in some
men but not others.
More studies are underway,
but for now the bottom line is
that working toward a balanced,
plant-based diet is much more
certain to reduce cancer and
heart disease risk than a blanket
one-size-fits-all supplement.
Any supplements should be
chosen to fill specific gaps in
meeting individual needs,
,remembering that more is not
always better.

said.
While equestrian sports can
be expensive, costs are mini-
mized as much as possible.
Students are asked to buy boots
and breeches, but "there is never
going to be a financial issue,"
Snyder said. Helmets, saddles
and bridles are furnished by the
school.
The instructors also are work-
ing on forming a booster club
that could help with expenses if
activities expand beyond the
class.
Both instructors have lifetime
love of and involvement with
horses.
Snyder's grandfather raised
horses, and her mother was a
two-time champion rodeo horse
show queen.
While still a toddler, Snyder
started barrel racing and mutton
busting, and at 8 joined 4-H. Her
neighbor had jumpers, so she got
involved in the hunter jumper
sport.
She continued riding and
grooming while at the University
of Florida. Snyder still shows in
dressage, hunter/jumper, trail
and equitation. Her two sisters
ride, as well.
Allen grew up in Bartow, and
used to rent a horse named
Flicka for 25 cents an hour from
the dairy that used to be at
Wilson Lake. He lived three or
flour blocks from there.
He'd collect Coke bottles and
turn them in for the deposit to
get the 25 cents. With only a bri-
dle and a "speed sack," he rode by
the seat of his pants. A rider was
considered good if he could ride
and not fall off.
On Saturday he and his
friends would ride to Fort Meade
or Eagle Lake and go swimming.
They would leave in the morning

and come back at dark.
In 10th grade he had his own
horse, but it got bit by snake and
died. After college and the
Marines, Allen got back to horses
in the mid-1960s, buying cows
and two horses. The Allen chil-
dren were involved in 4-H, too.
In 1984 he and his brother got
Arabians after researching the
breed. Arabians are the founda-
tion breed of all light horses in
the world, he said. He showed in
Western pleasure, but couldn't
figure out dressage for a while.
Then he realized it was a
process where you improve, and
can keep growing for years if you
want to.
He and his wife still enjoy rid-
ing, and did the Chief Joseph
Trail Ride, which went from
Lewiston, Mont., to Idaho.
Allen retired in 2004 from the
Florida ' Department of
Agriculture.
Already making plans for next
year's class, the instructors are
enthusiastic and so are their stu-
dents. Allen and Snyder have a
deep passion for education, and
better treatment of horses.
"It's a tremendous responsibil-
ity" to care for a horse, they said.
"We want to turn out people
prepared to be responsible and
effective horse owners."
Horses are unlike any other
domestic animal, Snyder said,
and learning to care for them
responsibly is "empowering."
They are planning some open
showcase days for prospective
students.
"We think we have a going
concern," Allen said. "We want to
take on grander and greater
things."
Horsemanship not only is a$
plus on a student's resume, it "is
a great wholesome thing for life."

Water Levels Reach

All-Time Lows In Lake


Water levels in Lake
Okeechobee reached an all-time
record low of 8.94 feet, surpass-
ing the mark of 8.97 feet set dur-
ing the 2001 drought.
Water managers have been
watching the water level slowly
drop as months of low rainfall in
the region took their toll on the
730-square-mile lake, a primary
backup water supply to five mil-
lion South Floridians.
"There is no joy over this
record-breaking event," said
Carol Ann Wehle, executive direc-
tor of the South Florida Water
Management District. "As these
extreme weather conditions con-
tinue, we are focused on the chal-
lenges' ahead to best protect
drinking water supplies, meet
agricultural needs and safeguard
our natural resources."
Rainfall directly over the lake
has been low enough to qualify
this drought as a 1-in-100-year
event. Just north of the lake,
along the tributary. Kissimmee
River and Upper Chain of Lakes,
low rainfall has produced a 1-in-
50-year drought. Only 40 inches
of rain have fallen on the region
in the past 18 months, about one-
half the average. More than 200
days have past since water
flowed in the Kissimmee River
and into Lake Okeechobee.
Historically, extreme water
levels in Lake Okeechobee have
fluctuated by almost 10 feet,
according to recordkeeping that
began in 1931. The all-time high-
water mark was recorded on Nov.
2, 1947, at 18.77 feet.
Today's record-breaking low is
almost a 10-foot difference.
Extremely low levels were
recorded during droughts in


1956, 1971 and 1981; high levels
were recorded in 1982, 1995 and
1997.
Water levels in the lake are
measured in NGVD units, or
National Geodetic Vertical
Datum units. NGVD is a nation-
ally established coordinate sys-
tem used to determine elevation,
especially in areas close to sea
level. At a typical water level of
about 15 feet NGVD, Lake
Okeechobee averages only about
nine feet deep, with the deepest
locations no more than 15 feet
deep.

tainment manger and dancer for
Disney Cruise Lines and show
choreographer for Warner
Brothers in Germany.
She has coached several high
school cheerleading, dance and
auxiliary, teams, and college
cheer teams, along with an All
Star cheer team in Lakeland.
She now resides in Los
Angeles, where she is a freelance
coach and choreographer, and'
international judge and speaker
at cheet and dance events.
The Boys and Girls Club of
Lakeland and Mulberry will
receive 15 percent of the net pro-
ceeds from the camp along with
several spots given to children
from the Boys and Girls Club.

tering for the camp or to learn

Sunshine State Games Bring

Together Florida's Amateur Athletes


Each June, Florida's only
Olympic-style sports festival
brings together thousands of ath-
letes from a variety of places
around the state.
Whether it be the metropolitan
areas of Miami and Jacksonville,
or the rural areas of Chiefland
and Arcadia, the state has come
together in the name of amateur
sports for the last 28 years.
Within a month, the 2007
Summer Games will be held in
Polk County on successive week-
ends of June 9-10 and 15-17.
Over 7,000 athletes are expect-
ed to compete in 25 sports.
Registration and competition
information can be found at
www.flasports.com.
Lakeland and Polk County
have a prior history hosting
Sunshine State Games competi-


tions before the 2007 and 21008
Summer Games. From 2000
through 2003, a "Spring Games"
was held in Lakeland and Polk
County with anywhere from three
to nine events.
During that run, a regular
competitor and supporter was the
Germain family, who typifies the
old saying, "The family that plays
together, stays together." Brian
Germain and his two daughters,
Katie and Kelly, are judo competi-
tors.
Competing in every Sunshine
State Games since 2000, the trio
of judoka have combined to win
12 gold and four silver medals.
Most recently, Brian won two
gold medals and was named the
Most Outstanding Male master
for the USA Judo Senior National
championships held in April in


Miami.
Germain won the 45-49, 100 kg
open and masters division titles.
He fought six matches in three
hours, opening with a victory over
friend and heavyweight gold
medalist Eddie Arrazceta of
